Paul, Year 9, Gubei Campus
This year’s football season was my first complete season with the school’s team, and it was full of excitement and memorable times. But the ACAMIS Football tournament really exceeded all of my expectations!
This was my first ACAMIS event, and although I had been to other international tournaments with my football team outside school, this seemed like a totally different experience. The trip really helped me get to know my teammates better and we enjoyed the three days that we spent playing together. The team spirit amongst our players from both the girls and boys team was very enthusiastic and supportive, and we would always cheer for each other during the matches. The coaches were also full of encouragement and they really encouraged the team spirit. We also got to know the players from other teams on the pitches and at the ACAMIS dinner.
I also really enjoyed the concept of having “home stay” lodging arrangements, because instead of staying at a hotel, we were living with some of the students and this gave us a chance to really get to know them. The whole tournament was truly a memorable experience, and I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to join next year! It was a great trip that I will never forget.
